Bichi 'La Flama' Roja 2019
'Flama Roja' comes from the Bichi estate vineyard in Tecate, Mexico which is farmed biodynamically with no irrigation. Bichi is working hard to make put Mexican wine on the global stage and insistent that the wines be made as traditionally and naturally as possible working hand in hand with organic farmers in the region, and employing local craftsmen for the concrete tijana's used during fermentation. This bottling comes from young vines planted in 2004 and is a blend of Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Nebbiolo. You might think these three varieties would create something heavy and intensely tannic, but this is actually elegant and medium-bodied.
